64 Percent of DEA Fugitives are from Mexico, Figures Show

A review of the Drug Enforcement Agency’s (DEA) wanted fugitive list revealed that less than 16 percent of DEA fugitives are from the United States. The review of the DEA’s wanted fugitive list took place from April 18 to April 21, 2017, in which all 21 DEA divisions were analyzed. The 21 DEA divisions that oversee the United States had a total of 902 listed fugitives. The place-of-birth of 115 of the 902 fugitives is unknown. The remaining 787 fugitives are from a total of 38 countries with the overwhelming majority coming from Mexico. The top three countries that DEA fugitives come from are: (1) Mexico, 505; (2) United States, 124; and (3) Colombia, 21. Out of the 787 whose place-of-birth is known, 70 percent are from south of the U.S.-Mexico border, 64 percent from Mexico alone.

And yet there are still some people who think we shouldn’t secure our southern border…  This is today’s mind-numbing reminder of why it is absolutely critical that we BUILD THE WALL NOW!!!!…and put U.S. Army National Guard troops physically ON the border with Mexico.  Then, those troops should remain there until that wall/fence is finally built above and below ground (to prevent tunneling)…however long it takes.  Simultaneously, we need to be deporting illegal aliens already here by the hundreds of thousands (and yes, you read that correctly)…paying particular attention to known gang members, criminal aliens, and those already determined by an immigration judge to be deported…regardless of age or gender.  And that’s just for starters folks!  To do anything less is NO in our country’s national security, or economic, interests.  Anyway, to read the rest of this sobering article, click on the text above.
